Ovarian cyst history


Q: I have a history of ovarian cysts & was diagnosed with PCOS. I since have had 2 surgeries. One to just remove cysts on both ovaries & 2nd time to remove right ovary & uterus due to excessive & prolonged bleeding which caused me to need a blood transfusion. During all the times I had issues with those cysts some showed up on ultrasounds that they were bleeding & I had bouts of severe nausea. Since my latest surgery, I still had occasional bouts of pain & nausea, but as of recently that has increased immensely & pain is on both side although I have no ovary on my right side. Also I have noticed weight loss over the past few months. Could this all be issues with more cysts? Could there be something on the right side as well even with no ovary there?

Symptoms:  Pain, nausea, weight loss

A:   Hello,
The pain bilaterally over the lower flanks after removal of one ovary and uterus already can possibly be due to either post operative adhesions or possibly due to development of pelvic inflammatory disease. Both these conditions can be evaluated by your physician with a ultrasound pelvis and a bimanual per vaginal examination. The pain and infection can then be controlled with antibiotics and pain killers.
